What You Need to Know...
Some helpful tips for tomorrow night’s game:
1) Get there early. Remember ALL the tickets sold were “will call,” so everyone will be in line to get their tickets and then have to get in another line to get in.
2) The nice new entrance on 120th Street is the only place where you can pick up tickets, AND that’s the entrance that has to block fans from getting to their seats except during timeouts. So if you don’t get there well before the game, you might miss some of the action. The doors for the box office on 120th will open at 5pm, so be ready.
3) That said, I consider the creation of that new box office and entrance on 120th to be one of the most fan-friendly changes CU has made in years. I believe it opened last year or the year before, but it’s a nice space and allows for much easier access. No longer do fans have to walk all the way through campus or hope that one of the loading docks on Broadway or Amsterdam is clear.
4) Parking is available at a number of garages very close to that 120th entrance. See the bottom of this link for more info.
I’m being told that students get in free to the game, which is great. I know it’s still technically spring break, but I’m betting a good number of students will be back on campus by tomorrow afternoon. And the students who in the general New York area now have a good reason to return just a little early.
